Snowbasin Resort in Huntsville is offering several breakaway packages to corporate groups staying at The Grand American Hotel in nearby Salt Lake City.

CAMPFIRE COLLECTIVE

Ride the Needles Gondola to the top of the mountain for a reception and live acoustic music before a Western buffet with meats like elk loin, buffalo brisket and American Wagyu prime rib served with all the trimmings. End the night being serenaded by cowboy poets while making s’mores and enjoying storytellers and yard games.

DINNER & A MOVIE

This faux Hollywood experience includes photos taken on the red carpet with a Wasatch Mountain backdrop before a celebratory reception and dinner. Next, head to the lawn and view a motion pic - ture of the group’s choice and savor live music under the stars.

FOOD & FLOR ALS

Snowbasin Resort’s culinary team helps organize either a Salsa Contest (les - son, team salsa-making and judging) or Shellfish 101 (demonstration, preparation and shellfish-themed dinner). Another option is a Centerpiece Scavenger Hunt, where groups head out with guides to forage the trails for flora and other items needed to create a centerpiece for a campfire dinner.

The Presidential Touch in Simi Valley

 

Groups can experience the grandeur of Chaco Culture National Historical Park with an expanded schedule of guided day trips offered through Albuquerque’s Hotel Chaco. Day trips are available every Saturday, from March through November, and overnight glamping excursions coin - cide with the spring and fall equinoxes in March and September. Day trip par - ticipants enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch pre - pared by Hotel Chaco’s chefs. Customized day or overnight trips are available on other dates. 

 

As summer quickly heads into fall, I’m thinking back to mountain and meeting moments that have caught my attention so far in 2018. Plus, I’ll toss some things in that crossed my desk recently as the editor of Mountain Meetings.
